The Seventeenth Century
In this revised edition edited by Andrew Loskey, readers are presented with information on the characteristics and intellectual developments of the seventeenth century.
The Seventeenth Century 1600 – 1715 examines how the seventeenth century was pre-eminently an age of intellectual ferment characterized by new scientific systems, new political and social thought, the introduction of modern warfare, and a continuous quest for order and stability.
Major selections included in this volume are from sources such as Descartes’ Discourse on Method and Passions of the Soul, Hobbes’ Leviathan, and Locke’s Second Treatise on Government.
